What Will Quark Expeditions Do Differently on Future Voyages?

Our first priority is always the safety of all guests, staff and crew, and how we operate future voyages will reflect this. Already a leader in safety, we will continue to lead going forward. As we define ‘what we will do differently’ we will update our policies here. Traveling with confidence is top of mind for all travelers. Just as we’ve worked closely with the Association of Arctic Expedition Cruise Operators (AECO) in the Arctic, we will also work closely with the International Association of Antarctic Tour Operators (IAATO) to develop and implement the most effective strategies necessary to keep our Antarctic guests safe, including screening strategies (for guests and crew), enhanced ship- and gear-cleaning policies, equipment and behavior modifications.
